Zoran Zaev stepped in to defend his MP Pavle Bogoevski, saying that his drug use is his own, personal matter. Bogoevski, who was the leader of the Colored Revolution ostensibly put in place to demand accountability from politicians, was recorded ordering cocaine from his dealer, but refuses to step down.
I’m a transparent man, I called directors and managers to accountability, I’m preparing to make additional changes. What happens in the private life of a person has no reflection on his public office and for me that is his personal right how he will act. As a party we say that his own private right is his own personal responsibility, He works successfully in Parliament, he is an active member of committees, Zaev said.
The Prime Minister also subscribed to Bogoevski’s defense that he was not purchasing cocaine, but cannabis oil that he nicknamed ‘cocaine’ for his sick sister.
